Before today's post, I would like to ask those of you who are inclined, to please pray today for a very dear friend and fellow blogger, Sandie from the blog "Chatty Crone."
She is having a double mastectomy today after cancer was found at her last mammography.
Sandie is an incredibly kind and loving human being.
That she has been stricken with wretched cancer is just unfathomable.
She brings so much love to the world and always makes us laugh with her posts.
Please pray for her and for all of her family today.
Last night, I asked her if it would be okay to print this and she "yes."
So thanks, dear blog peeps.
God bless you, dear Sandie, and help you throughout this day and all the days ahead.
Do you equate some flowers with your childhood?
When I was a little girl, my father grew irises in a round bed, located in our sideyard.
Their scent in the spring was like a whiff of heaven.
It was so sweet and delicate.
I remember bending over those beautiful lavender irises and sticking my nose into their blossoms.
(The irises in these two photos were found at Elizabeth Park in Hartford, Connecticut. Aren't the pinks divine? Maybe I should try to find some of those for next season. sighhhhhh)
Even today, many decades later, irises make my heart sing.
Right now, there is a bouquet of dark purple ones on the kitchen table.
WHAT IS ONE FLOWER THAT MAKES YOU THINK OF YOUR CHILDHOOD AND WHY?
